My wife, Jan, has been working with nurses for a very long time who have addictions. No one is safe from such problems. I think we all have within us weaknesses that can be a lure for becoming addicted to any number of things. So, to look upon someone who has an addiction with disdain is, I think, wrong. I do think, at the same time, not liking what they are doing to themselves and to everyone around them is acceptable. We are all human. We all have our weaknesses. I like chocolate…who doesn’t, but there are some out there who would live in a candy bar factory if they could. Others are addicted to places, people, jobs, drink, drugs, on and on and on goes the list. In any case, I’d like to introduce you to a new follower of mine who addresses alcoholism and his fight with addiction. And, yes, I know several alcoholics. And, yes, I have it in my family as well.
